Figure 5

The comparison of the nodular cosmetic scores between the RFA and MWA groups. There were no significant differences in the cosmetic scores before the ablation and at the 3rd, 6th, and 12th month and the last follow-up. The mean ± standard deviation is illustrated. (RFA: radiofrequency ablation; MWA: microwave ablation; RF_Cosmetics: the mean cosmetic scores in the RFA group; MW_Cosmetics: the mean cosmetic scores in the MWA group; BA: before the ablation; mo: months; FU: follow-up).
